Old Man Emu Suspension System (OME)
Custom shock absorber systems for 4WD are extremely complex. Determining the correct solution for your vehicle and for you, requires special attention to detail. Unlike other systems that are designed for a specific weight load, OME offers a variety of suspension systems that can be adjusted to meet the demands that the road or conditions will require of your vehicle.
The Suzuki Jimny is a unique vehicle, so developing a suspension system according to the present is a challenge for OME engineers compared to other off-road models. The Jimny uses small factory tires to be a narrow and light vehicle, so it has really unique characteristics when driving.
With this in mind, OME engineers decided to create an equally unique and fun experience with this system. The original suspension gave a reasonable response to driving but was focused on driving in cities, giving better responses on highways but reducing its effectiveness the more unstable the terrain became. OME engineers have developed a solution for their suspension with new springs and impact absorbers designed to measure that will allow you to maintain the geometry of the vehicle. The end result is a widely improved, balanced and predictable driving experience, both in urban and remote environments.
The factory geometry allowed up to 40mm of elevation without interfering with the level necessary for falls or height changes. Two options for front springs and one packing were chosen to compensate for the lack of accessories as well as bumper configurations or vehicles with winches. The spring ranges remained the same as those of previous models to maintain a balanced and comfortable handling without affecting the precision. For vehicles with bar or winche, other gaskets are necessary for installation. The 10mm are available to help reach the desired height.
The rear springs have been designed to be an integral part of this suspension. with 40mm of elevation, these will reach the same height as the front ones, however these can be adjusted to any height in case they have to compensate. Since the loading ability is minimal, the only spring included will be sufficient for all uses. A 10mm rear gasket is available in case you want to further customize the height of the vehicle.
The updated form of the Suzuki Jimny has allowed a larger shock absorber (Nitrocharger Sport model) to be installed, unlike the previous Jimny model that
It only allowed Nitro Gas models. This has allowed OME engineers to have more customization options, so a reimagining exercise was necessary. Several development processes, as well as adjustments to the results, were executed to find the perfect balance between the quality of handling and the type of spring without affecting the control.
An alignment correction kit has been developed to maintain the alignment of the tires even when the height changes. When installing this kit, you will feel an improvement in the steering wheel response, dramatically improving your driving experience.
During the development of this component, certain negative changes could be diagnosed, so this Panhard back support base was developed. Designed to improve vehicle stability by reducing the angle of the Panhard rear bar. Additionally, a separator is included to maintain the proper distance of the components with the parts of the chassis. This accessory improves the quality of handling but is not mandatory.
To compensate for the increase in vehicle height, a support for theu00a0light sensor was developed to correct this change automatically.
